Last Second Miracles, a company that makes children’s books based on real life sports moments, is giving away this autographed book — “The Answered Prayer”. (autographed by Jonny Harline) 

“a beautifully illustrated book about the historic 2006 BYU vs Utah rivalry game and the dramatic game winning last second touchdown pass from John Beck to Jonny Harline. The highlight of the book is the final page of the story when the audio from the actual broadcast sounds with the pull of tab.”
